The Dreaded Basement

 The embarrassment of it all!  Do you have a junky area in your home?  Mine is my basement.  My house is well over 100 years old and the basement is the rough spot in it.  I had shelving and closets built in years ago but there is only so much that can be done with this area.  I guess because it is not very attractive, it tends to be treated in a shabby way.  Things just get thrown and tossed in it and soon it becomes a big mess.  It looks like a hoarder lives here. I dove into it yesterday to try to organize it as much as I can.  After 6 hours, one third of it was tidied up.  I plan on tackling more of it today.  One thing I unearthed was this sweet farm table.

 It has an enameled table top with two leaves that slide out and up and lock in place.

 Maybe someday if I get my little farm, I can use this in the kitchen.

 The witch sisters sit on my craft counter.

 And amongst the pipes and wires, I have a pantry.

 After my work yesterday, I have some empty shelves....a small miracle!

 Part of my craft area.

Now I have to organize this mess.  If you don't hear from me in a few days, send in the troops!
